If your application includes an assembly that will be shared by other applications, you will need to uniquely identify the assembly with a strong name and then install it in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC). The strong name consists of the assembly's text name, version number, optional culture information, and the public key and digital signature to ensure uniqueness. The .NET Framework SDK provides command line utilities for creating a public/private key (sn.exe), assigning a strong name (al.exe), and installing an assembly in the GAC (gacutil.exe). For more information about these utilities, see the Framework SDK online Help.
